Patience a virtue that I am missing

Just a need to whine since my DH doesn't want to hear it anymore...

How long does it really take to inspect a vehicle? Some I see move through pretty quickly and it appears that this batch is sitting in the bay for a bit longer than normal...weather affecting staffing levels?

I keep telling myself that it doesn't matter if it comes next week since I will be out of town anyway but it's been so darn cold "I WANT MY HEATED STEERING WHEEL!!!"

oK..Rant over. Thanks for listening. And for those of you who have your TH, Limiteds...drive a mile for me will you?

Re: Patience a virtue that I am missing

Is it possible that the factory checks the forum and adds a few days to orders from folks who express their anxiety?

Re: Patience a virtue that I am missing

Sassy,

We were apparently crafting our patience/inpatient threads at the same time. Our C-THs appear to be long term bay-mates. Mine wants to be shipped to warm and sunny AZ ASAP. {The devil made me say that.}

Hang in there.

I am beginning to wonder! Maybe they have stats on how many times we click on the link to see if there are any updates...not that I do it more than once or twice a day...er hour. (Not really)

Maybe they don't want to be separated yet! It just seems so close but yet so far...
You are evil! But it's a heat wave, we had 20 degrees yesterday. Last night it stayed above zero...time to break out the flip flops.

Re: Patience a virtue that I am missing

There appears to be hope on the horizon...hopefully for all of us. Mine was released last night to being in shipment with a new expected delivery date of 2/16. Which I am okay with. That means about 6 weeks from order date for me. I WILL NOT COMPLAIN as most of you all have been waiting twice as long. I have not only been watching mine but yours as well.

Have a fantastic weekend and let's hope yours fall in behind mine very soon!

Re: Patience a virtue that I am missing

You guys haven't been around in the beginning as there were people that waited over 45 days when theirs was in Inspection. Don't worry, it will come.
